    I would go for it if you have the money, it’s fun to treat yourself to something. I got myself a new watch that was $250 when I got my first “real job” out of grad school.

    @aleachay:  If you can afford it, yes. If you will have to put off something important, such as groceries, then no.

    I have seen similar bags for less money. I would shop around first but up to you!

    If i’m going to spend that much, it better by something more special/interesting looking. That doesn’t look like an almost $400 bag to me. And unless there was a run on cows, i’m not sure how leather would all of a sudden be more expensive?

    If you really love it and can afford it then buy it!… I like the pink.

    @aleachay:  If you can afford it and love it, go for it (I’d do the red, would be nice for fall!!). Although, I’d recommend shopping around. You may find something nicer for almost $400..

    I voted yes!  Buuuttt I love purses and shoes!  And I would honestly say classic black if you are going to invest the money in something like that. That way you can use it during any season!

    I didn’t even read the post before I voted, but I have a problem with handbags. 🙂

    Once I did, red is the obvious choice.  You won’t carry a bag that pricey every day.  You’ll get sick of pink since you aren’t 14.  Red is classic and works in any season, and will up any outfit.

    @almostmrsj:  Ha ha! I wear my pricey bags daily. I never saw the point in buying something $$$ if it will only see the outside of the sack once a year.  It does depend on the design though.

    @CARA1978:  Well, so do I.  🙂  But most people don’t.
